Mom employs 'sign shaming' tactic to discipline boy who cussed at teacher

SPRING, Texas - A twelve-year-old boy has been punished in Texas for his foul mouth in a very public way.

The boy stood on a busy street corner in Spring, Texas, holding a sign that read, "I was suspended from school for cussing out my teacher."

Rachel Macha is a close friend of the boy's mother.  She says she made the sign, believing it takes drastic measures to get a point across.

"You try the different tactics, like grounding and taking things away.  This was something different. If you can stand up and talk like a man, you need to take your punishment like a man."

Macha and the boy's mother say that other attempts to discipline the boy in the past have not worked.
